Healthgrades analyzed all-payer state data for 16 individual sites that provided all-payer data between 2017 and 2019. They found that there is a significant variation in hospital quality between those that have received five stars and those that have not.

According to Healthgrades, there is a significant variation in hospital quality between those that have received five stars and those that have not. For instance:

  • The Obstetrics and Gynecology Award places these hospitals in the top 10 percent of all hospitals evaluated for the exceptional care of women.
  • The Labor and Delivery Excellence Award places these hospitals in the top 10 percent of all hospitals evaluated for the exceptional care of mothers during and after labor and delivery
  • The Gynecologic Surgery Excellence Award also places Henrico Doctor’s Hospital in the top 10 percent of all hospitals evaluated for providing outstanding quality outcoms in gynecologic surgery, including hysterectomies and surgeries related to the female reproductive system.
